We had to have a semi rest day.. so today we took it easy. Went by Reposaari to get water est wrll and shop for food… then continued a little way up north to the Merenkurkku National park isle Seliskeri
Another good sailing/ paddling day!! Southwinds continued and we zoomed along nicely. Maybe not so much energy to play too much.. but we were sble to travel along another 50 km’s with a smile on our faces. This time got some nice pictures and video with the gopro camera mounted on the kayak.
The sun dissappeared halfway thru the day but this didnt dampen our spirits.
Santakari is a nice sandy spit of sn island some 7 km south if Pori. Odd slatelike rocks and wildstrawberries dot the ground. A place for another visit at another time!
The best paddling/sailing day of the trip thusfar!!!
Sunny. Southwinds 6-8m/s all day long. We made good time too!
Travelled some 50 km’s, practically from Uusikaupunki to Rauma. Sailing now with the full sail was pleasant if not fun! Wave heights were between 20- 60 cm range and on a couple occasions we played around a bit by surfing in the following seas.
The day started beatifully. Winds had cslmed a bit and no sign of rain! Also we hot an iffer for sauna and lunch from one if Marko’s friends at Hakkeenpää. So after breakfast we zoomed to Hakkeenpää.
After a very refreshing sauna and a filling lunch we continued zoomin north past Taivassalo. The wind was weak but the direction helped us along very nicely! After almost 50 km we stopped st Vähä Hylkimys for the night. Located west ftom Uusikaupunki.
Our previous days paddle lasted til midnight. We landed at Gustavsörarna. An island in the middle of a big bit of water. Weather forecast had a highwinds storms approaching sometime today.. so we broke camp around 0500 and continued to a better camp location at Sandvik. The rest of the day was spent washing, fixing eating and sleeping..
Sunny day. Winds SW @ approx 10 m/s.. = headwind. After 19 km of trying to ho on, we made ashore st Tallholmen had an afternoon nap ( 4 hrs) before continuing after thr wind speed dropped to sbout 5-6 m/s.. paddled till 2300.
